Hi Doug. Thanks for using JA and requesting me. I will try and help you out.

Yes it uses the same tool. However you may need to cut off one side of the tool to make it work. When these engines came out, the tool will hit the IVA housing so you need to cut about 3/4 of an inch off one side to make it work.

Here is the information for the overhead. Just copy and paste this link into your Internet browser.

Please let me know if you need more help or have more questions. I am happy to assist.

Hey Doug. Sorry you are having trouble. It does this sometimes. Unfortunately it's the only way I can do it.

I would use your mouse and drag over the link, then right click and copy, then paste into the browser. That should work.

Let me know.
